The Farmers’ Index.
All letters intended for the Editor of this De
partment should be addressed, “Farmers' Index,
Drawer 24, Atlanta, Ga.”
THE TRUE POLICY.
It is folly to attempt to persuade far
mers to plant less cotton in order to dim
inish the production and thereby en
hance the price. The mass of them can
never be controlled by such considera
tion. Even if concert of action could be
secured by voluntary agreement—by the
agency of Clubs, Granges or Farmers’
Unions—long enough to affect the mar
’ ket sensibly, so soon as the price reach
ed the point of profitable production, the
great majority of cotton planters would
break over such weak, self-imposed re
straints or voluntary agreement and
plunge again into “all cotton.” _ Not
withstanding our past experience, if cot
ton should bring twelve to fifteen cents
a pound throughout the coming -market
season, the whole South would become
cotton crazy next spring, and would plant
for a ten million bale crop.
No. The farmer needs to beconvinced
that the true policy is to adopt a self
sustaining system that will be profitable
without regard to the price of cotton.
The farmer who cannot make a “living”
without planting cotton cannot make
money by planting it. The truth is, we
do not understand the true principles
that underlie success in farming. We
hold that the most important truth that
must be realized by the farmer is that
true progress and profit consists in in
creasing the value and productiveness of
the farm and its stock. An Income that
comes of the sale of the products that
have been coined out of the heart of the
farm, is deceptive and illusory. Under
the system of labor that prevailed before
emancipation (the best in some respects
ever known) the absolute increase in
wealth among farmers was very largely
due to the natural increase in the num
ber of slaves. But, while the labor was
efficient and under good control, the
general system of farming was far behind
the age; and the loss of slavery left us at
very great disadvantage in the race of
progress and improvement. We had
lived so easily that it might be said that
living required scarcely an effort. There
seemed to be no occasion to learn those
habits of thrift and economy, and that
ceaseless panistaking and intelligent ap
plication of the principles of improved
stock breeding, soil imprOTement, and
high farming generally that have made
so many comparative deser's to blossom
with fruitfulness. The war left us with
such a knowledge of farming and such
habits of extravagant living as could on
ly consist wi‘h a system of compulsory
machinelike labor, such as we had dur
Our labor was destroyed before we had
adopted an intelligent system of farming,
before w? conceived the idea of increas
ing the productiveness of our lands, and
investing onr profits in constant improve
ments and permanently increased values.
We have been in the habit of attribut
ing all our ills and embarrassements to
the war and its violent changes. But
we venture to say that even If the war
and emancipation had not occured, the
necessity for a radical change in our
methods and habits would soon have be
Up to the hour of writing the present
session of the Legislature has been re
markably free from excitement of any
kind. Much of the time so far has bem
consumed in cutting out work in the
regular daily sessions and sending it to
the committees to be trimmed'and shap
ed for future discussion and action, or
buried in the rubbish with the thousands
of bills that have gone to the same tomb
Local legislation—which, it was
thought would be greatly diminished un
der the new constitution—seems to be
more embarassing than before. The res
trictions and conditions imposed as a
prerequisite to the inteoduction of bills
of a local character, have been met with a
promptness and punctiliousness which,
the introducers seem to think, entitles
such bills to the favorable consideration
of the assembly. The publication requir
en and preliminary votesand references,
give to this class of legislation a dignity
to which many of the individual bills are
not in themselves entitled.
It is very common to speak of Georgia
Legislatures as being composed of very
inferior men, intellectually and morally.
This habit of underrating the abilities,
motives and moral character of our leg
islators and office holdersand those occu
pying conspicuous positions generally, is
one that seems to be inseparably con
nected with'democratic institutions. It
is an abuse of the privilege and duty of
freemen to hold their officers and legis
lators to a strict account, but it is none
the less a bad and hurtful practice, and
ought to be discontinued. The present
Georgia Legislature seems to be in bet
ter favor with the public than previous
ones, and we have rarely heard the voice
of harsh and ungenerous criticism raised
against them. Indeed they are fairly
representative men of Georgia, and
many of them rank among the highest
in the State in point of ability and patri
otism, integrity and morals.
The several very important measures
that must be disposed ot in s ame manner,
will doubtless receive (as they certainly
merit) the most respectful and earnest
consideration of the Senators and Repre
sentatives. The educational interests
of the State, the temperance movement,
the railroad commission, the convict
system, the Capitol question, and other
scarcely less important matters call for
the exercise of the very best intellect
and most exalted wisdom and patriotism.
We have faith in the devotion of the
members to what they conceive to be the
best for the State, and only fear that false
ideas of economy may control and pre
vent such appropriations of money as
appear to be necessary to the future pros
perity of Georgia. There is danger that
parsimony and niggardliness in the ap
propriation of money be mistaken for
economy; and some very cheap reputa
tion for patriotlim and honesty will be
claimed by certain men as a reward for
a sort of chronic suspicion that every bill
to appropriate is simply a raid on the
peoples money—a sort of robbery, that
they, as self constituted detectives must
expose and prevent.

THE CHRISTIAN INDEX AND SOUTH-WESTERN BAPTIST: THURSDAY, JULY 18, 1881.
From a letter, dated June 12th, 1881,
from F. E. Whitfield, Sr., of Corinth,
Miss., one of the owners of the Clement
attachment Patents, we learn that there
are nine mills in operation now with the
attachment in use, namely: By S. S. Forr
ler, Elizabeth City, N. C.; by C.T. Hard
ing, Windsor, N. C.; by Geo. H. Cornel
son, Orangeburg, 8. C., with 5 cards
turning out about 1000 lbs., thread in
eleven hours, and running day' and
night; by Fairmount, Mfg. Co., Willis
ton, S. C.; by Westminster Mfg. Co.,
Westminter, S C.; by T. J. Davis & Co.,
Mt. Pleasant, Fla.; by A. Bonner, Senoia,
Ga.; by Henry Habbert, Tuscumbia,
Ala., with 3 cards, and making 600 lbs.
thread per day; by C. L. Statler & Co.,
Cuero, Tex. All these mills report that
they are making money, except the one
at Senoia, Ga., which is run by steam
and has to pay so high for fuel and for
an engine that the profit (being a single
card mill) is eaten up. Tnis mill would
doubtless pay, if its capacity were in
creased to about 800 lbs. thread per day.
Mills will be started this summer in
Tyler county, Tex.; at Richburg, 8. C.,
by O. Bonher; and at Suffolk, Va , by
Thos. G. Elars. The Bridesburg Manu
facturing Co., Philadelphia, have orders
for machinery for new mills in Louisi
ana, Alabama, and other Southern
Mr. Whitfield demonstrates that the
profit on spinning yarns with the attach
ment direct from the seed is at least $6
for each attachment per day, when as
many as three are run. Also that the
spinning of cotton into yarns doubles its
value, and weaving it into cloth trebles
its value’ If the planters and farmers of
the South form joint stock companies,
and put up small mills on all the avail
able shoals and streams they would soon
be spinning one half to two-thirds of the
entire crop and give employment to labor
in our midst that now earns almost noth
ing. Capital for the purchase of the nec
essary machinery could be borrowed in
Northern and European money centres
just as easily as it is now borrowed by
our merchants. It is well known that
four-fifths of the money used in selling
supplies to our farmers at the runious
rates of 40 to 200 per cent., is borrowed
in Northern and European markets. The
proper organization and business me
thods on the part of our farmers will suc
ceed just as well.
The subscription list of the late Sou
thern Enterprize has been transferred to
the Southern Planter and Farmer publish

The SouthemCultivator greets us month
ly as usual, with well filled pages. This

valuable monthly articles.
The Cultivator is now published by the
Constitution, Atlanta, Ga. $1.50 per an
Howard's manual of grasses.
We have received from the publishers
a copy of the “Third Edition, Revised,
with an appendix on Ensilage” of the
above valuable little pamphlet. It con
tains forty pages of reading matter and
is for sale by Mrs. C. W. Howard, Dil
lon, Walkercounty, Ga. Price not stated.
Though unpretentious in size and style
this little “Manual” has long been the
standard authority on grasses in the
South, and we are glad that a new edi
tion has been prepared and published.
The appendix contains an Essay on En
silage, giving all that is known of this
interesting new process, to date.
This operation has long practised as a
rule by some farmers, but many intelli
gent ovservers have remarked that its ef
fect is very uncertain—cannot be fore
seen. We believe that, if performed at
the right time, topping is beneficial in a
majority of cases. It seems to depend
upon a principle analogous to that which
underlies the practice of pruning to in
duce fruitfulness in orchard culture.
The immediate effect of stopping the
growth of the main stem, seems to be to
throw the energy of the plant into other
growing points, viz—the young bolls and
squares already formed. So a good rule
as to topping in general would seem to
be that it is not safe, cr at most, not ad
visable to perform the operation except
upon stalks that have already as many
young squares and bolls as may reason
ably be expected to mature under the
most favorable circumstances, and on
these the leading limbs ought to bestop
ped also by pinching out the bud.
From the middle to the last of July
embraces probably the best time for top
p’ng in most years.
It is well to thoroughly test the matter
by topping at different times and com
paring the yield with rows adjacent not
Training a Colt.— Bad horses are
more frequently made than born. It is
very much in the bringing up—in the
way the colt is cared for, and the man
ner in which it is broken. Firmness with
kindness go very far in making a valu
able horse. The colt should early learn
that it is never to be deceived ; that it is
to be encouraged and rewarded when
obedient, ana punished by the with
holding of careses when disobedient. The
same natural qualities that make a horse
vicious colt will, with proper treatment,
make one of those intelligent and spirited
horses that all desire to possess. The true
trainer of colts is gentle, loving, firm,
and thoughtful; and the young animals
under his charge partake much of the
